Within the course of 10 days and countless miles traveled, we were able to assist nearly 200 women in 6 different medical centers. The impact of this project was seen and felt in the smiles and tears of joy from these women. For many of them, it was the first time they were receiving a professionally fitted prosthesis and a bra, something that is not easily accessible in Ghana.
One of the women we were able to assist was Francisca Anyorkor Boateng Amponsem. Diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and facing surgery, she was in desperate need of a bra prosthesis fitting. As a mother of five in Ghana, where resources for such fittings are scarce and often expensive, Francisca’s experience was a significant moment in her journey. Not only did she receive practical support, but she also felt emotionally uplifted by the generosity and kindness shown by Mary’s team.
On behalf of all the women who benefited from this initiative, we want to express our immense gratitude to Mary Keane and her team. The impact of their selfless act has gone beyond just providing a prosthesis and a bra, but it has touched the lives of many women and their families.
